Ik i quoted your entire post, but i only mean to reply to the last section. By teaming i am talking about blatant teamers. Not those who abuse the ffa system by substituing in other players. Its gotten so bad now that I can predict when players are going to team and I am 90% correct with them. Most of the times I try to report these guys, the staff ignore it and instead go for cakewars reach reports. If only QA can ban for reach and anyone can ban for blatant teaming, why not just go to the server with blatant teaming? I did skim over your other arguments, but I did read one thing saying something like "remember mods are volunteers, therefore they shouldnt be required to do their job". You act as if they didnt sign up and go through an extensive training process for this position. If a mod cant handle having to take 2 seconds of their time to read reports and answer them, they should resign or not have signed up for that position to begin with. Imo mods should know about every game mechanic if they want to moderate the server. Or at least have them say the games they play and limit them to only banning people in certain servers. Mods false banning shouldnt be a problem and shouldnt be excused if the person was just using basic game mechanics. The argument that "they shouldnt be required to know every game mechanic" makes no sense. They chose to be staff, therefore they should be aware of basic things like spider's directional jump. Nothing can justify a staff member, someone whos supposed to improve the game experience, making the experience worse just becauss they dont know about something. Again, if someone doesnt understand how the very few amount of mechanics in the main game works, they shouldnt be given power to remove players from the server. I also saw an argument about "just appeal, its no big deal", but I dont think you understand that appeals can take up to days to be processed and are sometimes denied. The appeal itself takes almost half the time to get unbanned to begin with, so all it really does is reduce the ban time to begin with, when they shouldnt have been banned in the first place. Also, even if someone appeals a ban, their next ban is still a longer time. This has happened to me before when i got falsely gwen banned twice. The first time it was 14 days or something, and the next time it was almost a month ban. This happened even though I appealed the first ban. Thankfully I appealed both of them, but if the second appeal wasnt accepted (which happens more often than you think), I wouldve gotten a 1 month ban for doing absolutely nothing.
